SHC Patient, Mar 2017

dr Lin is excellent at focusing on my health concerns and questions

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Couldn't be better on all counts. Unlike any medical care I've received anywhere.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Dr. Lin was just awesome with me.. He spent an hour with me and even went for a walk around the building to watch me walk. I can't say enough about what a great Dr. he is.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Dr. Lin is very good. I have a great deal of confidence in him.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

The first person to attend me was a student. I realize this is a teaching institution but I should have been asked if a student would be allowed to take my history and examine me unattended. I was appalled. The doctor did come in after the student discussed her examination with him.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Again there was no sense of urgency about getting me the treatment I require.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

I have a terrific PCP, Dr. Alsan. no one else I've seen measures up.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Good listener, gave patient enough time to ask the questions and explained it clearly. I will recommend this doctor to my friend and I like to see him again.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Excellent care. Confident in provider.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Dr. Lin spent little time entering data on the computer. Most time was in interfacing with me. He seems very knowledgeable and decisive.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Dr. Lin was so impressive in handling my questions & concerns. He even WALKED us over to a dermatologist, who Dr. Lin had arranged for us to see at the end of the work day. Very caring doctor!

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

My care provider is very efficient & caring. I live in the Philippines but I came to the US either every 6 months or at least once a year to see him for check up/follow up.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr Kenny is my primary. I required a pre op, and saw Dr Lin, who was great, as all my Stanford doctors are.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

he was carefull and experienced. To explainhow to use the prescribed drugs, he evenwrote down on paper and showed me how to use them step by step.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Maybe my list of concerns were too big, so it ended up being rushed a bit.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Dr. Lin always covers everything for me when I come in for an office visit. This is always very helpful.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

I have great confidence with the care providers in Stanford.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Lin is excellent to provide the professional and helpful advice. It helps me improve the quality of my daily life. I appreciate Dr. Lin very much!

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Lin was very thorough and explained all areas of concern in easy to understand terms. He also provided a pragmatic way forward and allowed me to take ownership of some further research and actions.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

I have been seeing Dr. Lin for many years & have always found him to be very caring and an extremely good diagnostician.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Skilled personnel physician.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

I had asked to do the labwork in advance and was told I had to wait. This would have made my appointment more valuable if the doctor had the results before I met with him.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Dr. recognized a potential problem no neurologist had considered (sleep apnea). After a sleep study it was determined I had it & began CPAP treatment. It has made a diff. in sleep quality.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Dr, Lin was very kind, compassionate, and thorough! I felt as though I might get answers to all of my health issues. For the first time in a long time, I have hope! I had given up on ever knowing why my life has suddenly become unmanageable! Thanks to Dr. Lin, I now have hope that I will get answers to what plaques me!

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Dr Lin has a sunny personality. I like him.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Dr. Lynn was very informative and really cared about my health. He didn't want me to do procedures that were not necessary. He listened to me about my blood pressure and unlike other doctors took my records and booking into consideration and upped my medication making my blood pressure normal and me feeling better. Thank you!

SHC Patient, May 2015

Talking to my doctor through MyHealth is very easy. Dr. Lin is very competent and I'm confident to trust his advice for my health.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Lin was very thorough, well informed and candid. He was thoughtful in looking at my historical records as well as the current situation. Then, he was pragmatic about what I should focus on in the future.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

he is great. willing to listen and discuss my thoughts or research I have done on subjects with out being immediately dismissive. willing to explain why or why not. I feel like that because of this he demonstrates mastery of situation and information. he is polite, kind and honest. if he was a neighbor, he would be a friend I would invite over for dinner ( and not to ask about my health)!

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

I specifically read the reviews of Stanford's doctors on the Stanford site and perhaps I'd just gotten my hopes high. I did not find the reality matched the hype.

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Lin. He is outstanding and I am thankful he is my dr.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

No bad experiences to report.

SHC Patient, May 2014

Dr. Lin is the best doctor I have had in my 74 years!

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

Courtesy explanation all the questions.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

First - rate experience.

SHC Patient, Feb 2014

I twisted and strained my ankle badly. The doctor explains the procedures to help to reduce swelling etc. He personally teaches me how to use gauze to wrap my ankle and he did the wrapping himself instead of a physician assistant.

SHC Patient, Feb 2014

Pleasant, smart doc, tries to get it right.
